...Responsible Pet Care Mission Statement

Welcome to RPC

Responsible Pet Care of Oxford Hills provides a safe and comfortable environment for dogs and cats from Oxford County, Maine that have become lost or have been abandonded.

Responsible Pet Care is a no-kill, non-profit shelter. All of the cats and kittens in our care need permanent homes and are available for adoption. Many of the dogs will be reunited with their owners; but some will require new homes.

Whether you are looking for your lost pet or you want a companion, make Responsible Pet Care the first place you visit.

Your New Best Friend


Picture of Zeke the dogEight year old Zeke is a brown, Labrador Retriever mix. He is one of four senior dogs that are currently guests at Responsible Pet Care. We call our senior dogs, Silver Muzzle Buddies. He's an older dog that just needs a good home with someone that understands the issues older pets have. If his gray muzzle doesn't get to you, then his soulful eyes certainly will do the trick. They tell the story of a dog that wants to be someone's best friend again.


Picture of Midnight the catMidnight is only seven months old and the shelter is the only home he has ever known. This little cat feels a little uncomfortable when he meets someone new. However, he soon warms up when he is engaged in play. He needs a patient hand. We know he will blossom when he is in a loving home.

Find more best friends waiting for you.
